About Us

The Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd (USA) is a growing congregation. We gather together from across the Melbourne/Palm Bay area to witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ. While some are lifelong Presbyterians, some come from other Christian traditions and backgrounds, or no religious background at all. We welcome the seeker, the devout, and the skeptic alike as we gather to learn, serve, and grow as disciples. We are confident you will find a way to experience and share God’s love at Good Shepherd. Come and See! Join Us!

“Serving God and His church with our time, talents and treasure.”

Actions speak louder than words! As Good Shepherds we reflect God’s love through the missions we choose to support. Click here for more information.

Thank you for visiting our website. As pastor of Good Shepherd, it is my hope that you will enjoy it as you learn more about our community of faith. Our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey. Together, we are striving to become the kind of church described in the Bible, where there is relevant teaching, heart-felt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, compassionate care for those in need, and many opportunities to serve others. We strive to have the kind of contagious Christianity that can make a difference in our world today.

You are cordially invited to join us this coming Sunday as our church family gathers to draw near to God through Worship.

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Scott

Scripture for Sunday, May 26, 2024

John 3:1-17

New International Version

Jesus Teaches Nicodemus

John.3.1-173 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. 2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”
9 “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.
10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up. 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Romans 8:12-17

12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba,[b] Father.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Got Kids?

Every child has a story. God is dealing with every kid, regardless of how many times they come to church. Treat every Sunday like it is the only Sunday that some kid has. Did they hear about Jesus? Did they feel loved? Did someone ask about them? Nurture these precious children! Whether they are wee little ones or teenagers, we have programs for them all!

The Music Program

Good Shepherd held a Christmas Eve Service this year which was attended by congregants who observed all Covid protocols. It was a celebration that the church has every year. Everyone enjoyed the singing of carols, the ringing of the bells, the telling of the Christmas Story, and the camaraderie in the sanctuary.

Our Mission

At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd

Our mission is to help connect people to faith

 A Shepherd leads, cares for, and loves his sheep. The sheep knows the voice of their shepherd, they follow him, and him alone. Even the lost lamb is found and carried in the loving arms of his caregiver. At the Presbyterian Church of the Good Shepherd we listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ; we follow the will of our creator God; we are empowered to be obedient sheep through the Holy Spirit. Jesus commanded us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind, and to love one another as he has loved us. That’s our challenge – lead, care for, love, and bring home God’s children. We invite you to join us as we journey and grow in our community of obedient and loving sheep under the care of the Good Shepherd.
